What is 2-1-1?

Nonprofits like United Way and various government agencies provide excellent programs to support people in need. The problem: The people who need these programs often don’t know they exist.

Most Pennsylvanians only need to dial 2-1-1 to be connected with an operator who has access to a database of health and human services available in your local communities.
